What is a Charter Cruise?
A Charter Cruise is when a company or entity buys out a ship in order to have a private sailing, typically for the purpose of a theme cruise. In our case, we purchase the use of the ship for the duration of our Jazz Cruises. We provide all the entertainment for the cruise, book the staterooms, and occasionally host a Specialty Dining option.
